Composer Information

Antonín Leopold Dvořák (8 September 1841 – 1 May 1904) was a Czech composer. After Bedřich Smetana, he was the second Czech composer to achieve worldwide recognition. Following Smetana's nationalist example, Dvořák frequently employed aspects, specifically rhythms, of the folk music of Moravia and his native Bohemia. Dvořák’s own style has been described as ‘the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them’. [source from Wikipedia]

Work Information

Dvořák originally composed the Slavonic Dances for four hands and adapted later for the orchestra. He didn't use the melodies of the folk songs directly but fused the Slavonic style and the dance spirit and then singly composed these musical compositions.
